We had a wonderful experience in this beautiful store. The leather is simply exquisite and the quality of the service was very high. On one of our visits here, my niece and I had the opportunity to meet the charming and talented Silvia, a highlight.

After hearing about the store from a local family, I checked it out. My cousin sent me a Nordstrom's link of an Iro Ashville jacket ($1200). Sylvia herself reviewed the photos with me and then worked on three iterations of the design until she had it down perfect. 2 fittings, she used additional materials at her own cost to get... More

The leather is of the best quality. The service exceeded expectations. The owner and staff are professional. A huge difference from the tourist stores on Florida Avenue. I purchased a leather coat and suit case.

After walking in casually with my wife and parents our last day in Argentina, we were immediately greeted by a welcoming staff that offered us water and asked if they could help us to find anything in particular. (We had found the shop through Yelp - so with little to no knowledge of the shop, we were pleasantly surprised by... More

This is THE PLACE to go in BA for leather. Not only do they have a beautiful store with a large selection of styles, leather types, and colors, but also a welcoming staff that is knowledgeable about the products. My friend had a custom leather jacket made in about a day and they even delivered it to our hotel. I... More

Wonderful find. The quality was top notch. My wife andI each bought jackets. Everything can be made to order on sight. My coat needed altering and they fixed it the same day. My wife's fit like a glove. The people are fantastic. Silvia and her staff were great. We felt like family

On a recent visit we went to Silvia y Mario for leather goods. My friend found a coat she loved and then also had a vest made. VERY custom. It had been a man's hunting design and she worked with them to re-design for her. They rushed to get in done in two days so we could bring home. While... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
